Pros: "no"
Cons: "respect"

Pros: "The portion for LAX to Doha was fairly comfortable and crew was helpful.. they kept running out of meal options by the time they reached us mid flight .. Doha to Bengaluru portion was less classy— the TV/ remotes etc didn’t work well and overall service not as good .."

Pros: "Crew was terrific. Great service. New aircraft are comfortable too."
Cons: "Food. Meals are of poor quality. Bland in taste and rubbery texture."

Cons: "Qatar’s food is great! Feels like five star dining. Attendants are helpful and friendly."

Pros: "The crew was amazing. I upgraded to business class and am so happy I did for the 16 hour flight."

Cons: "Excellent service and stuff"

Pros: "Friendly crews. Excellent food. Great service. On time arrival."
Cons: "They could provide hotel for transit passengers with long layovers."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "amazing"
Cons: "better food"

Pros: "Just as I thought it could not get any better The service was perfect. The privacy was superb and the comfort allowed me to sleep for a good while."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."

Pros: "I think that my review and comments about the first portion of the flight apply equally to the second portion of the flight. Despite my criticism of the food, the flight attendant service was above expectations."
Cons: "The food. Hire a chef that knows how to make the food palatable."

Pros: "Everything was great ,On time , comfortable seeds, Crew were very nice , boarding was quick Thank you Qatar Airways"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything really.They run the airline very smoothly and professionally from boarding to disembarking."
Cons: "They tempt you with so much food lol although some of the food wasnt too appealing.toilets very clean and seemed to stay that way throughout long 17hr flight.good leg room for a long legged guy like me.felt sorry for lady with two young children.She could have been allocated better seats."

Pros: "Plane was very empty so it allowed us to spread out."
Cons: "Cabin noise was loud. There was a high pitched whine throughout the whole trip."

Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."

Pros: "Friendly crew and good food/drink service. Timely departure. Comfortable and spacious seating at the departure gate."

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and polite, I requested low-fat meals and they were good, the entertainment was very good, the air temperature was comfortable, most flights I had were on time."
Cons: "The legroom was a problem. Seats are kind of narrow, and then, with the lack of legroom it’s somewhat challenging to shift your legs, especially when the seat in front of you goes back! I felt like the person was almost in my lap. My cup even got crunched. I think my biggest issue, though, lay in how I was treated after paying $127.00 to obtain a day pass for the lounge each way. For my inbound flight my purse was branded with an “economy” class luggage type tag, and I was made to feel as though I was trying to sneak in. I had to show my boarding pass a number of times to employees after asking for the location of the lounge in order to be directed there, and then my credentials were examined as though I was trying to get into Fort Knox. Upon arrival at the desk, I was somewhat tersely informed that I had 6 hours. I went out of my way a bit in order to fly Qatar, which is supposed to be so wonderful, and I was underwhelmed. I’ve had better experiences on Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines."

Pros: "Nothing was wow! Liked politeness of one of the airhost. She was good with good english"
Cons: "Plane wasnt clean enough specially toilet."

Cons: "One restroom was out of service"

Cons: "I didn't like that I had to get off the plane and then put back on the plane. That was not noted when buying the ticket. That is important information."

Pros: "Small airport"
Cons: "Transfer is inconvenient."

Pros: "Great travel experience. We flew economy. Spacious, good service, comfy, on time."
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "There were a lot if security checks but the boarding crew was very helpful and let me check in a bag at rhe last minute with duty free shopping items that i would not have been able to carry with me on-board the airplane."
Cons: "No internet and the food was mediocre at best."

Pros: "The plane from Johannesburg to Doha was Fine but not as wonderful and comfortable As flight from Doha to Chicago"

Pros: "Crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "Nothing to report."

Pros: "Wonderful airline! Very nice and friendly staff. I will fly with them again."

Pros: "Late night flight and new cabin design was great. Crew was friendly and quick to respond to requests."
Cons: "Entertainment options need to be expanded. Mouthwash should be added in toilet."

Cons: "Leg space in economic class is too less. No options in vegetarian food. They don't give you what you want."

Pros: "Flight was on time and departed as scheduled. Flight was comfortable and seats were decent. Would have liked a little bigger seats and more legroom in the economy seats"
Cons: "Food was not up to par and seats could have been a bit bigger for the economy bracket."

Pros: "crew were all very nice & eager to please. they did keep refreshing the bathrooms which was needed."
Cons: "seat was next to bathrooms which were used constantly & the noise made it difficult to sleep. seat did not recline & seemed to be at an uncomfortable angle. flight was full so nothing could be done. entertainment very out dated as far as movies & you do need them on a 16 hour flight!"

Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"

Pros: "Clean. Friendly staff. Good food. Good entertainment."
Cons: "Small cramped seats."

Pros: "Very helpful staff both ways, an experience that we rarely see in major airlines these days. We will definitely fly Qatar airways again."

Pros: "After hearing our complaint, the Transfer desk staff was friendly and helpful and solved the situation in our favour. We"
Cons: "Once we landed in Doha to board omthe connecting flight, ground staff was waiting right outside the hate to let us know that our flight was overbooked. We were then informed that we were put on the following flight arriving after midnight at our destination. Our compensation was going to be 250 USD and a free entry to the lounge. What a way to start our holidays."

Pros: "Timely response on the phone."
Cons: "Timely response on the phone."

Cons: "Entertainment - screens are not user friendly and bad visibility in day light"

Pros: "Good crew. Nice plane and amenities."
Cons: "Flight to was canceled due to engine issues. Flight home was canceled due to scheduling error. Issue resolved at check in, but caused stress."

Pros: "Great service and food"

Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."

Pros: "The seating, crew members, and entertainment was really good."
Cons: "I was given two options to choose from for brunch which were scrambled egg with sausage and paratha. Upon asking for paratha I was told that they ran out of Paratha. This happened very first time with me. Even though the crew provided me with excellent service I was surprised to hear the Qatar Airways could run out of food?"

Pros: "The food and entertainment systems were good. The staff on the plane were pleasant."

Pros: "the flight was very comfortable . the movies were very good."

Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "I didn't appreciate the fact that Qatar opened so late at the Abu Dhabi airport, nor did I appreciate that the woman who printed out my boarding pass royally screwed up and printed gate 8 , when in fact it was gate 3. That was total BS. Supposing I missed my flight due to her negligence ??"

Pros: "It was nice service and hospitality"

Pros: "The service on this flight was not very good. We almost missed our flight whilst waiting for a wheelchair for mother. She had to finally walk to the boarding gate because the wheelchair we had requested did not come."

Pros: "Crew polite and efficient."
Cons: "Boarding process non-existent. Huge queue of 80+ people. Seats average comfort. Food bland. No entertainment other than on the overhead displays. Will avoid flying with this type of plane / flight."

Cons: "Plan was really cold then really hot, they just could not control the temp. They also just left my bag in Zanzinar!! They never but it on the plane, which of course you don't find out until you get to your final destination without a bag. I was disappointed in Qatar Airlines for this."

Cons: "I asked the crew to gave me a glass of hot milk cause of my diet, if it's possible, he laughed at me and told me I bring you warm one and never come back with even warm milk"

Pros: ":)"
Cons: ":("

Pros: "Seat was roomier. Food was good."

Cons: "An hour delay"

Cons: "To actually be on it would’ve been awesome"

Pros: "They really help out families with young children."
Cons: "Internet wasn't working."

Cons: "The unplanned layover in HNL was very poorly handled."

Pros: "Easy on and off"

Pros: "The attendant was nice about it"
Cons: "They tried to still get me home on the same day. They even put me on a different airline. It did not work. I am in Chicago for 24 hrs with one $12 meal voucher. A burger at the hotel is $17"

Pros: "The captain was wonderful"
Cons: "The crew were jerks"

Pros: "Crew were great, especially considering we had a couple of mishaps travelling with a five year old and five month old. Despite being a mega long flight it was comfortable and we were well looked after."
Cons: "Seats are a little narrow on the exit rows and bulkhead as the armrests accommodate the TV and tables. This also means they can’t be moved. Not unique to Air NZ though."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They delayed so long that I had to reschedule for another day. This is after watching planes to other possible locations take off before United would switch peoples tickets. This was after a 4 hour layover completely disappeared. They should have been able to reroute planes or something after the first 2 hours of delays since it was for a weather phenomena that gives tons of warning (at least 24 hours)."

Pros: "I got super lucky and had three seats to myself, it's a long flight just over 12hrs and good sleep is precious. The entertainment options were excellent and I watched some great first run movies. Food was quite good with options, beverage service standard. Restrooms were readily accessible and "clean.""
Cons: "We left SFO an hour late waiting for a handful of late passengers - good for them though, eh? The rest of the passengers on plane were packed in like sardines. Seemed to me that too much space on plane dedicated to the premium 'cabins' for the uber rich, but they were interesting to look at."

Pros: "Thanks for the free cocktail"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Gate personnel was unable to direct my 77 year old mother where package claim was. Being unable to go to the gate without a ticket I was unable to assist her. She wandered for about 35 minutes before I could decipher where she was at and was able to direct her by phone. The gate personnel just told her to follow everyone else. What a thing to say to someone."

Pros: "Forthright on giving out informatiom"

Pros: "Security was quick and easy to get through."
Cons: "There were only 2 stalls in the bathroom in our gate area."

Cons: "Not enough room!"

Pros: "Agent at check-in was very, very helpful and accomadating"

Cons: "Late."

Pros: "Great flight! On time. Pleasant crew. Good snacks"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Traveling fast"
Cons: "To pricey"

Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything went perfectly! Check-in easy, security line fast...gate support was professional and pleasant, flight attendants great, pilot very friendly & it was a jammed packed flight!"

Pros: "Friendly"
Cons: "Everything was good"

Pros: "Online movies and TV"

Pros: "Easy to board friendly"
Cons: "The snack food selection, price on wifi"

Cons: "A passenger had to move because of an allergy to the "emotional support dog" in the seat next to her. They moved her before the rest of the flight had boarded, so the seating got messed up and took quite a bit of time to sort out. The flight crew seemed to be extremely put off by the whole scenario and couldn't seem to keep their displeasure professionally under control. I ended up volunteering to move because the passengers who caused the problem refused to bend. For all the crew's displeasure, they didn't handle the passengers, the passengers handled them."

Pros: "Good flight. On time. Good crew. Decent legroom."
Cons: "Not enough room for suitcases in overhead bins. Crew could tell people not to put jackets in overhead bins but did not. Food selection - would be nice to have a choice of 2-3 snacks."

Pros: "Both flights were delayed."

Pros: "Got us here early, smooth ride"

Pros: "The crew was polite."
Cons: "The plane was flithy. The crevice between the seat and the wall of the plane was caked with filth. The beverage served was lukewarm water, with no other choices. The plane was uncomfortably hot."

Cons: "My suitcase was ruined in transit to Kansas City. The help desk basically asked me to leave my bag behind for three weeks to see if they can fix it. They had no means of looking after the contents. Was I suppose to carry my content???This was ever so frustrating since the suitcase was brand new. Then the lady told me that my warranty on the bag will cover the damage. It was obvious she was not willing to help and did not have a clue what she was doing thus I just logged the complaint and had by suitcase sorted out the San Francisco Airport. They were very helpful."

Pros: "Able to pick seat"
Cons: "A little tight"

Cons: "there was no outlets on the flight for me to conduct business and to use my laptop to access wifi."

Pros: "The pilot comes on and tells us what's going on. I like being informed."
Cons: "When offered a drink, how come we aren't offered the whole can of coke? If we don't want that much we can always say no. Also, I rated entertainment and food low only because there weren't any of these to rate. The overhead was so full that I couldn't place my bag in the overhead. The luggage check in is no longer a service a customer is provided if 1) I have to pay to check one in. 2). I have to lug it around with me only to have no place to put it. 3) the amount of time it takes to get off and on the plane because the line backs up while everyone waits on prior passengers to get their luggage into or out of the overhead (some are too short, too weak, ot placed their overhead ten rows away). Yikes!"

Pros: "I asked for assistance because I have a hurt foot and wear a boot, so walking is difficult. There was someone at every stop wAitng on me with a wheel chair and they quickly got me to my next gate and also asked if I needed the rest room or wNted to stop and get a drink or food. Very very Attentive and friendly!"

Pros: "Considerate crew"
Cons: "Late, plane problem, replacement needed hasmat, blood, missed connection, sent to hotel, two hours sleep before I had to spend $60 for taxi to get back to airport, baggage mishandled, baggage arrived two days late."

Pros: "It eventually ended"
Cons: "Spent almost an hour before actually taking off. Terrible service. No"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable."

Pros: "The stewardess that tended to me was extremely nice and had a wonderful attitude. Effortlessly, she accomplished her job and made myself and everyone around feel comfortable with limited means."
Cons: "Flight delay. Some flights have phone chargers-This flight did not. no pillows"

Pros: "Leg room on the flight was better than expected."
Cons: "I slept most the way. So which I had my pillow and blanket. Lol"

Cons: "Seat in back of plane from Houston to Tampa horrible seats would not incline foot space barely big enough for legs <9 inches. Those seats should never be assigned I feel like I wasted $ by the horrible seating!"

Cons: "Seat cushion uncomfortable, seat back wouldn't stay forward"

Cons: "I don't like small crowded planes. You get off at gate 50 and have to race to gate 20 to catch your next flight."

Pros: "I have no compliants at all. :)"

Cons: "Three gate changes prior to departure"

Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "No jetway, long walk to the next gate and then the same long walk back down to board the plane for the second leg of the trip."

Pros: "The new planes are great."

Pros: "It was seamless. Everyone excellent and flights on time."
Cons: "Still would like a snack choice."
